Photo contest deadline nears


Staff report



GREENVILLE — The Darke County Park District has announced that Nov. 1 is the deadline for amateur photographers to submit photos to its 2015 contest.

The winning photos submitted will be used to create a 2016 calendar. There are 12 Darke County Parks and 12 months in the year. The goal is to feature a different park each month highlighting the particular season.

Photos must be taken in one of the 12 park areas during 2014 or 2015 and submitted by amateur photographers only. Amateur is defined as someone who does not earn more than half of his income through photography. Scenery photos are preferred, but photos of people using the parks may be submitted. A release form must be signed by recognizable people featured in a photo. Photos must be in a horizontal orientation only and must be submitted digitally (6 megapixel minimum.) No more than five entries can be submitted per photographer per month. Entrants under 18 years old require a signature from their parent or guardian. All photos submitted become the property of the Darke County Park District who retains the right to use all submitted photos in any advertising and or promotion it deems suitable.

Entries will be evaluated based on appeal, content and photographic skill, and the judges’ decision will be final. Credit will be given to the winning photographer in the 2016 Darke County Park District Calendar.

Submit photos to hlinebaugh@darkecountyparks.org; include the date and location where the photo was taken and the photographer’s name.
